|Megurine Luka fanart I worked forever on. Not my newest, but I am proud of this.|
At any rate.. I finally finished everything today. I think. I added some minor shading around the door, and fixed a few stray lines I saw later on from the one on Tumblr. This is the complete one.
Now, as for the story behind this.. Yes, these are Soul Eater characters you see here. With an OC, and a design for a character that doesn’t officially have one, so far as I know. Why are they all just hanging out, without someone going OMG, IT’S THE KISHIN, RUN! Or without the aforementioned Kishin trying to kill everyone? Cause this is an AU picture, probably sometime in the 80s. An AU where Asura isn’t.. super crazy, Vajra (Asura’s weapon partner) is still alive, and the DWMA exists and they’re students.
Pictured here are Asura and Vajra (my design for him, anyway), Scarlet (my OC, and I will mention her later), and Excalibur. So far as I know, Vajra doesn’t have an official drawing anywhere, so I had to make something up. Mostly, anyway. All I can find is on the Soul Eater Wikia, and Wikias aren’t official. I don’t remember the manga ever showing him or addressing him by name. But even if it is true, he’s younger here, soo.. yeah. Excuses. XD. I did incorporate some things into my design (a kind of punk look–and I did give him some piercings that are super hard to see/would be blocked. He has an earring, and did have an eyebrow piercing.. that’s blocked. lol.
Scarlet, the girl in the front (she’s closer because she’s the one taking the picture.. well, with a tripod and the delay function.. did cameras even have that in the 80s?) is the only actual OC here. It’s kind of hard to tell because of the hair color/fact this is small, but she’s supposed to be Gopher’s mom (creator? I somehow missed him being a demon tool when reading the manga, so I assumed he was born and had a mom until I looked him up again). She is very similar in temperament to her son (meaning, like REALLY irritable/easy to piss off. And particularly devoted to one person, in her case, Lord Death. Kind of like Justin Law, I guess. If she were younger, they’d probably get along great. ANIME Justin Law, anyway..), But other than that, she’s kind of the easygoing type. When she isn’t ticked off at you. It wouldn’t be possible because of age in this pic, but in my RP, she’s one of the barkeeps at Chupa Cabras (because money), and ends up throwing Spirit out on his ass a lot because of his sleezy behavior–much to the annoyance of the main barkeep. Did she know what she was getting into? Yes. But it didn’t make dealing with Spirit’s crap any better, and can only deal with so much because of her temper. But that’s in the future. At this point, she’s a comrade to Asura and Vajra, albeit with possibly no partner (she’s probably similar to Kim in the fact she’s a sorceress/meister, but I haven’t decided on any partner yet).
Anyway, this is them just kind of hanging out. Along with Excalibur, because he just appears wherever, and also was a comrade of Asura and Vajra’s at one point. I’m seriously glad to be done with this, just because the background was so tedious. I stink at drawing graffiti, lol. It took me redoing it three times before it was presentable.
**the above is out of date, but I like the picture**
Hi. . I'm Elise Grimwald (or Elise/Reine Schelmisch/Filia Ryuuza, it depends on the site. It's either Elise or Elise Grimwald on the WHOLE, though). I've been drawing since I was 8 years old, but only started trying to learn using How-to books when I was 15. I still feel that I have a long way to go, however. . And it's been 10 years since I began drawing seriously. I joined Deviantart on July 4th, 2003 (on my old account), and have loved it here ever since. In addition to drawing, I make wallpapers occasionally. However, I can't post them here. .
As for influences on my art.. I don't particularly emulate one artist. I've tried to make a style that's my own. I do, however, really enjoy the works of Ken Akamatsu, Cocoa Fujiwara, Mayumi Azuma, Aoi Mizuki, Studio R.R.O.C. (I loved their Harry Potter doujinshi), Yuna Kagesaki, Arina Tanemura, Yana Toboso, Hiromi, Kara, and Yuzu Mizutani.
In addition to drawing, I also enjoy writing fiction. I'm working on a novel titled "Moonlit Night". It's REALLY slow going for me, though. I also write and draw my own webcomic, which can be seen either on here, or on the website below. I also enjoy video games, particularly RPGs. I also love anime and manga, and am a HUGE fan of the Harry Potter series (as can be seen by my username. XD.).
I'm going to leave some of my old profile info, as well. Thanks for reading this, and I hope that you enjoy my art.
